What gas is liberated from hydrogen peroxide by enzyme action?
And can H₂O₂be broken down by catalysts other than those found in living tissue?
H2O2 –> H2O + O2
Not balanced, of course.
peroxide is used as a rocket fuel. I don’t think you can use enzymes for that sort of decomposition.
Catalase breaks down hydrogen peroxide, doesn’t it?
I was addressing the second part of the question, due to the heat involved
to give oxygen which appears as bubbles in the catalyst.
oops i meant -to give oxygen which appears as bubbles in the catalase test.
you can edit your posts if you wish to do so lara
dont know about any catalyst other than those found in living organism. but u can use oxidizing agent (KMnO4+sulfuric acid) or chlorine. It’ll produce O2.
platinum is used in cars, definitely inorganic and not found in organism.
